Thanks for this very informative post. It's great that Orissa is moving to tackle this problem. But I couldn't help feeling a bit sad on reading this. Consultative processes and community discussions are a good place to start, but this problem is way bigger than Orissa (as the people there surely know). People in Washington DC and my home state of Virginia should feel ashamed that the U.S. has yet to get serious about climate change, even as much poorer people in Orissa are getting organized to do what they can. With efforts like that in Orissa, India has an opening to become a global leader on climate action, and to shame the U.S. and China into moving faster. We badly need global leadership on this issue. Here's hoping that Orissa--and India--will show us the way.
